Comcast Moving Pop TV To A Premium Tier Of Channels
Comcast announced this week that Pop TV, home of Impact Wrestling, is being moved to a premium channel package. Essentially, Pop TV will no longer be available to all Comcast customers – people will have to go out of their way to pay extra for this premium tier. Obviously, this is not great news for TNA as they look to build viewership for Impact Wrestling.
Here’s the statement:
“In December 2015 and January 2016 we will be making changes to our channel lineup in select areas. CMT, Spike TV and POP will be moving to different tiers of service and in some areas RLTV will no longer be carried. We are making these changes to manage overall programming costs and better align our more popular packages with the most viewed programs. These changes do not affect all areas, so please refer to the grid below to see if your area will have a tier change for one of these networks.”
